The spa at Hacienda Encantada offers a vast array of quality spa treatments to help make your Cabo San Lucas vacation one to remember. Immerse yourself in ultimate relaxation and go back over 1200 years in early Mexican culture by trying the ancient ritual of Temazcal, a house of steam.
Like no other spa treatment, this primal health ritual brings together the four cardinal elements: earth, fire, wind and water, which are used to purify the soul and rid the body of toxins. Stemming from ancient Mayan descent, this spiritual process of cleansing the body through profuse sweating is a sacred journey used to heal all physical, mental and moral ailments. In fact, the Temazcal has been used to treat a variety of illnesses including bronchitis, prostate issues, rheumatoid arthritis, liver problems, circulatory problems and more. This ancient stress reliever can also reduce muscle tension and help release negative energy from the body, which leaves each guest feeling rejuvenated, energized and healthier than ever before.
The process begins by entering a small room to which a round chamber stemming from the floor awaits. Piping hot stones are then splashed with herb - infused water to create a natural steam room. This sweat lodge is said to bring the body back to the natural environment of the womb. The Temazcal at Hacienda Encantada offers an authentic Mexican ritual, guaranteed to leave you refreshed both mentally and physically. It is best to refrain from eating one hour prior to the treatment, and it is crucial to drink plenty of water before and after. For more information on this one-of-a-kind experience, visit The Spa.
